assuming you have a Windows OS, you'll have to find a program that will edit/process .wav files; personally, i use Audacity (version 1.2.6), i find it fairly easy to set up and use

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

once you've got audacity installed (if you're just looking to work with the .wav files, don't bother setting it up with the lame encoder for .mp3), the next step would be to expand the .flac files to .wav (though audacity will work with .flac as well) using Traders Little Helper

http://tlh.easytree.org/

then (and this is a tedious pain), open one of your .wav files with audacity; next, go to the edit menu and open up the Preferences tab, then click the tab "File Formats", and where it has the pull down menu "Uncompressed File Format", you want to set it to "WAV (Microsoft 16 bit PCM)" if it isn't already pre-set for you; then click OK

back at the visual of your .wav file, you'll see down in the very lower left corner of the program, a tab button to the right of "Project rate" -- change this from 96000 Hz to 44100 Hz

then go to the File menu and click "Export as Wav", and save the file to a newly created folder other than the one you are importing from

then, do same for each 24bit .wav file

this SHOULD result in .wav files that you can then burn to CD

there are other programs than Audacity that will do the same, perhaps even will do batch processing (all files at once), but i am not familiar with any of those

good luck! ... any questions, PM me over at Lossless Legs, or e-mail me
